Hi pauashell,

Just had a thought, sometimes the groundsmen are there, in the Sexton's shed they have maps of the layout of the cemetery.  That is from the Opaheke Road side entrance.

Cheers

I found what I was looking for today after wandering around at the wrong end for some time.  There is a map showing the areas by religion on a workmen's shed there.
I want to share it as it certainly helped me.

I have just tried to find three at the Papakura Cemetery.

It took me approx 45 mins and didn't even cover half of it.

I only found 1 plaque and RSA part which is reasonably easy. It is unfortunate that they don't have Row numbers at the end of rows make searching a lot easier.

But you would not be able to walk around some of it with a walker or wheelchair.
